Veteran Trial Attorneys and Experienced Negotiators
With over 100 years of depth and experience, we offer an essential approach in today's complex legal landscape - we seek to make peace, but always prepare for war. Whether a crisis arises in the form of a criminal investigation, regulatory inquiry, company-threatening crisis or complex commercial dispute, we are equipped to take immediate action on multiple fronts with a focused perspective.
Because our white collar criminal defense team is comprised of gifted trial lawyers and veteran investigators, prosecutors readily recognize our ability to poke holes in their investigations and they take our threats to take a case to trial very seriously. At the same, time, we have established our reputation as calm and savvy negotiators over time by striving to maintain close working relationships with key government officials.
There are no stakes that are too high for us, but sometimes, a behind-the-scenes resolution isn't practicable, and our clients are prosecuted despite our advocacy and negotiations. At trial, our criminal defense attorneys have successfully defended clients investigated and prosecuted by the:
- Department of Justice - Criminal, Civil, and Appellate Divisions
- Federal Bureau of Investigation

We understand that government investigations threaten businesses with vast consequences. In response to governmental or regulatory agency inquiries, our Firm also provides services to corporate board committees and special audit committees, and we work with in-house counsels to conduct internal investigations and to provide risk management. Our lawyers advise companies on the proper manner in which to develop and implement corporate governance policies and how to improve business ethics guidelines to avoid future problems.
